FIGURE (four times through)   

Circle left
*Won't you come along now
Come along with me now
To the Mississippi
Yeah, yeah, the Mississippi

Left allemande, well you weave that ring
**Truckin' on down now to New Orleans
Dosado around your baby
Men star left and maybe
Go twice around now, yeah twice around now
Hey when you meet you swing your sweet
Promenade, keep walkin' down to Basin Street
Heads wheel around, slide thru, dosado
Make an ocean wave and rock it so neat
Spin chain thru, "Oh, Basin Street"
Girls circulate, star thru, partner trade
Cross trail you do, swing the corner Sue
Allemande left new corner, promenade you do
So I can lose those Basin Street Blues


*The band's gonna meet us
Yeah, it's gonna meet us
Old friends are gonna greet us
Yeah, they're gonna greet us

**Shuffle on down to the land of dreams

Basin Street Blues Lyrics ID: 373

Won't you come and go with me
Down that Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Come along with me on, down to New Orleans

Now the band's there to greet us
Old friends will meet us
Where all them folks goin' to the St. Louis Cemetery meet
Heaven on earth... they call it Basin Street

I'm tellin' ya, Basin Street... is the street
Where all them characters from the First street they meet
New Orleans... land of dreams
You'll never miss them rice and beans
Way down south in New Orleans

They'll be huggin'... and a kissin'
That's what I been missin'
And all that music...lord, if you just listen'
New Orleans...I got them Basin Street Blues

Now ain't you glad you went with me
On down that Mississippi
We took a boat to the land of dreams
Heaven on earth...they call it Basin Street

Lyrics by Spencer Williams.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong (1928).
